Hull, Massachusetts

Work in the City, Live at the Beach

The seaside town of Hull, Massachusetts is located on a peninsula on the south side of Boston Harbor. It is a town graced with scenic views, a vibrant community and close proximity by water to the city of Boston.

Hull is perhaps best known for Nantasket Beach which is a popular summer destination and one of the busiest beaches in the Greater Boston area. Nantasket Beach was the former home of Paragon Park, which was known for its wooden roller coaster and beachside amusements. The carousel and various other buildings from the park still remain.

The beach itself is very flat and with fine sand, making it a popular spot for sunbathing, swimming and recreation in the summer months. The beach is divided into a public recreation area with various bath houses and amenities as well as a more private section to the north commonly used by residents of the town.

The town is made of various hills connected by sandbars that form the uniquely shaped peninsula. The geography of the town creates a variety of neighborhoods all with individual characteristics and charm. From the beach cottages of Kenberma to the coastal estates of Allerton Hill to the historic properties of Hull Village, there is truly something for everyone.

Hull has become quite popular with Boston commuters due to the MBTA ferry service from Pemberton Point at the northwestern tip of Hull with direct service to Logan Airport and Long Wharf Boston. The ferry takes under 30 minutes and residents with a municipal sticker can park free of charge at the Hull ferry terminal. Offering a full bar, with snacks, coffee and alcoholic beverages, the ferry provides a relaxing and unique commuter experience. After the hustle and bustle of the fast paced city of Boston, arriving at the Hull Ferry terminal feels like you’ve arrived on an island vacation.

The town is also serviced by MBTA Commuter Rail with direct service from Nantasket Junction, just across the Hingham line south of town, and South Station, Boston. This trip take under 40 minutes. Both transportation options provide easy access to the Boston Subway system via the Blue Line Aquarium Stop and South Station respectively.
